Science has always been able to build bridges and overcome borders – whether geographical, disciplinary or social. In times like these, it is more important than ever to strengthen already existing connections between international partners in Central Europe and to build new alliances among younger generations. For this reason, the Free State of Saxony initiated the international science conference “Building Bridges for the Next Generations” organized by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR).

Scientists from Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic will come together and discuss how to solve urgent research questions especially in the areas of Health, IT and Energy & Climate. They will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with international experts from public institutions as well as partners from the industry and start-up scene.

To show their support for this important cause, Michael Kretschmer, Prime Minister of Saxony, and Petr Fiala, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, have confirmed their participation.

CASUS will also be present at the event. Among others, Dr. Tobias Dornheim, head of the CASUS Young Investigator group “Frontiers of Computational Quantum Many-Body Theory”, will present his research (16 May at 4 p.m.).

The conference will be held at the International Congress Center in Dresden (Saxony, Germany). For further information and the program please visit the event website.

Registration is now open.
